    I'm currently running Castrol GTX 5w-40 fully synthetic Click and I am very happy with it. If you have start up rattle 5w40 will get rid of it

    with the V8 you will prob need around 8 litres mate, a 1.8T takes 5 litres(5 Cylinder) mine takes 6 litres(6 cylinder) so yours is prob 8 litres(8 cylinder)

    id recommend either Quantum Platinum or Mobil 1 ESP.

    quantum platinum from TPS is something around 18 for 5litres so a big saving on the major brands
